Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio may have hyperhidrosis, or profuse sweating in layman’s terms.
In spite of Rubio’s law degree and other accolades, it means nothing to the viewer who sees him sweating profusely. We all know that sweating in public let alone while making a speech is very unattractive. I know that I wouldn’t shake hands or hug anyone if they are soaking wet from sweat.
Of course, fellow candidate Donald Trump has been making cheap shots at Rubio because of this. Trump mocks Rubio by opening a water bottle making it splash, saying ‘This is Rubio’. I cannot help to believe that there is also a subliminal message, considering that Rubio is Cuban-American.
We all know how Trump feels about Mexican immigrants, who are labeled as ‘wet backs’ by racist idiots. Like Archie Bunker, I’m sure that Trump would put all Latinos in the same category, but that’s my thought.
Regarding hyperhidrosis, this form of sweating is beyond the norm. The nerves responsible for triggering your sweat glands become overactive and call for more perspiration when it’s not needed (Mayo Clinic, 2016). It gets worse when you are stressed or nervous which may be Rubio’s case.
Hyperhidrosis may have underlying causes such as:
- Certain medications
- Menopause hot flashes
- Low blood sugar
- Overactive thyroid gland
- Some types of cancer
- Heart attack
- Nervous system disorders
- Infectious disease
I truly hope that Rubio monitors his health and that his hyperhidrosis is not due to any of the things above.
My hyperhidrosis is due to menopause hot flashes. I start to sweat abruptly and it looks like someone splashed a bucket of water on me.
If Hilary Clinton starts sweating during one of her speeches, God forbid that Trump mocks her with a pail.
